NATIONAL BLACK CATHOLIC
APOSTOLATE FOR LIFE
“IT’S ALL ABOUT WITNESSING
THE DIGNITY OF LIFE
IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.”
RESPECT LIFE MONTH
The National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life
affirms that human life is a unique gift
from God. All human life is sacred and inviolable.
Because we believe that every human person is created
in the image and likeness of God,
our mission is to defend human life in all its stages
and in every condition. Our mission also calls us
to pray and labor for the end of all violence.
God, who can turn our worries into wings of joys and our sorrows into songs of thanks, let not our hearts be so troubled by the tragedies of this life’s moment that we lose sight of the eternal life in Your Kingdom.
Give comfort and solace to our brothers and sisters who suffer almost unbearable losses every second, minute, and hour in our nation and world.
Strengthen our resolve to replace hatred with love, tension with trust, and selfishness with caring and community.
Heal, oh God, all our children so that those who hate and those who are hatred, those who hurt and those who are hurt, may grow up in an America and in a world of peace, opportunity and justice.

Through the intercession of Our Mother of Perpetual Help we pray:
Response Jesus you are our source of Life and Mercy!
In time of trouble:
grant us peace beyond all understanding.
In time of trial:
grant us perseverance in faith.
In time of fear:
grant us courage and trust.
In time of opposition:
grant us grace to love our enemies.
In time of death
grant us mercy and life eternal.
